Portal 2 is a great game. The levels were hard enough that I couldn't figure them out straight away, but could still noticed the solution after 5-10 minutes. Games like Modern Warfare 3 couldn't hold a candle.
Return to Aperture for further testing. Our Portal 2 Walkthrough provides a walkthrough for story mode, tips for co-op, and unlockables.
Place a blue portal directly above the jump pad and your orange portal on the long panel in front of you (it is slightly hidden by the broken black walls). Use the jump pad four times (the first three will be for plot development) to exit out your orange portal. On the above level place an orange portal on the tilted platform on the right side of the laser. Take the jump pad again and you'll arrive at a switch. Press this to release a reflection cube on the other side. From here place your orange portal on the other tilted platform and jump down to the jump pad, springing you up to the cube. Take the cube and align it with the short wall on the left. Now face the wall, but fire your orange portal at the third tilted platform on the left. Jump down back to the jump pad and you'll be taken to the top floor. From here place both your portals on either end of the small wall to let the laser pass through, unlocking the door to the elevator.
After entering the room, turn around and place a blue portal far above the entrance door. Next move over to the pit ahead and fire your orange portal below. Drop down through the orange portal and you'll land on the ledge with the cube. With the cube in hand, return to the main level and use the jump pad to reach the second floor. Place the cube into the laser's path to block the node, lowering the glass wall. Head back down to the main floor and use the jump pad to reach the third floor.
Press the button the right to release a reflection cube. Fire a blue portal onto the wall to the left so that aligns with the laser sensor node. Afterwards, head back down to the second level. Replace the normal cube with the reflective one and place your orange portal on the far wall ahead. Grab the normal weighted cube and use the jump pad yet again. Upon landing, place the weighted cube on the button to open the elevator entrance.
Shoot a blue portal against the end of the light bridge to gain it into your possession. Place an orange portal on the other side of the room and move through your light bridge to reach the button. Hit the switch and weighted cubes will continually fall on the left side. Return back to the other end and place an orange portal on the center wall. Go through your blue portal and onto the center bridge.When you reach a dead end, place an orange portal on the wall on the left, walk down, and place one more orange portal on the floor on the right below.This will form a light bridge that will catch the falling cube.
Grab the weighted cube and move through the portal behind you, back to the start. from the beginning area, place your orange portal on the right hand wall to bring the light bridge to the cube button. Enter the blue portal and walk across the bridge. Drop off the weighted cube on the button and place an orange portal below to return to the start. Place an orange portal yet again near the door and switch to reach the elevator.
Put an orange portal above the light bridge and your blue portal on the wall ahead of the entrance. Go through the blue portal and place a second orange portal at the true end of the light bridge. Enter the orange portal to return to the main area. Shoot your blue portal at the lone tilted wall on the left and hit the switch. This will drop a cube that will land safely on the light bridge. Grab the cube and move through the blue portal. Once through the orange portal, turn around and fire another blue portal on the left wall. The light bridge will now be pointing towards the exit door. Take the weighted cube through the portal and place it on the weight button, unlocking the door to the elevator.
Right in front of you will be a turret facing away. Grab it or bump it to shut it down. Fire your blue portal at the wall ahead and quickly turn the corner. Avoid the next turret's laser sights and place an orange portal behind it. Walk through your blue portal to take down the turret. Around the next corner, place your orange portal below the turret to take down the next enemy. Move on and you'll come to a room with two turrets and three cubes. Place a portal above the turret and one below a cube to squash the enemies under your box. Do the same with the other turret. In the next area place a portal below the turret closest to the door. Next, place your orange portal on the left wall and a portal above the turret facing away from you. Drop a cube through your orange portal to take out this enemy. Place another blue portal above the last turret. With all the enemies defeated, take a cube and place it on the button to open the exit.
Move forward and take the lift to the main level. Take the reflection cube and place it in front of the center and right nodes. Place a blue portal behind the right node and your orange one behind the left. With the lasers in place the door will unlock, leading to the elevator.
Place your blue portal at the end of the light bridge and your orange portal in front of the lone turret to block its laser sights. Enter the orange portal and knock over the four turrets ahead. Place down a new blue portal and move through to take down the original lone turret. Restore the blue portal to obtain the light bridge and move into the next large room.
In here, place an orange portal on the pillar to the right to block the cluster of turrets. Move towards the jump pad but don't get on yet. Instead, fire your orange portal above to form a wall with the light bridge. Use the pad and reach the top floor drop down the hole ahead and take out the four turrets. Now pick up the weighted cube and move to the main floor. Place your orange portal on the pillars ahead to form a wall of protection and drop the cube on the button. Move out of the sights of the next pair of turrets and place your orange portal above them. Quickly move back into cover and place your blue portal to take out the enemies and reach the elevator.
Place your orange portal below the laser and your blue portal in front of the enemy turrets. Stand on the switch and let the laser destroy the first three turrets. Take the normal weighted cube and place it on the button. Grab the reflection cube and use it to kill off the next three turrets. Afterwards use the same cube to align the laser with the sensor node. This will unlock the doors leading to the elevator.
Place your blue portal at the end of the light bridge and your orange portal on the wall to the right. Enter the orange portal until you are near the laser. Turn around and fire your orange onto the wall on the right. Pick up the cube and enter the blue portal. Drop the cube in front of the laser so that it blocks the node, lowering the lift. Stand on the lift and turn back around; place any other portal to disrupt the light bridge and lower the cube onto the button. If everything was placed correctly the lift will bring you to the open elevator door.
Such a great game, the level design shows Valve's creativity. I wish companies like Infinity Ward would take a few hints while making mw3 and its levels. Modern Warfare 3 could use Valve's "touch", just look how great this and Team Fortress 2 is.
Brilliant game. Wish I had bought the first one before I played this one, but it's so good it doesn't matter. Excellent voice acting and brilliant puzzles - keep it up Valve!
i wish there were more videos because i keep reading to make sure where i am and i cant even tell at all 0_o
@ icepop4who: If it's so easy and you don't need a guide, what are you doing here? Hmmmm.... Kind of strikes me as an 'I'm better than you guys statement to me'. The truth seems to be, I got stuck somewhere and needed a little nudge in the right direction.
I think this is a great game. but sometime u have to spend an hour on a single floor in the later levels because it gets a bit hard.but still a very good game
I just dont understand the point of listing the trophies if you are not showing how to get them step by step? I mean its a guide right?
lol this is the easiest puzzle game ever. As long as you're not ADD or something, you don't need a guide. Just take your time with it.
Who writes this stuff? It's "levers", not "leavers"! Portal is the bomb, tho' (GLaDOS made me say that)
I love this phreaking game. Right when I thought it was going to end, it keeps on going! I thought it was more of Portal 1, then it goes nuts! The levels are organic, believable and atmospheric. Look out for my review. Incredible game.
What kind of idiot would actually use a Portal walkthrough? Solving puzzles is literally the only thing to do in this game. It's like paying money to have to read and follow a guide.
Without photos can be as frustrating to understand as some parts of the game. Try the youtube hints if you are really stuck.
Didn't play the first one but am really enjoying this game!! Worth the money if you like brain teasers.
If you liked the first Portal, you will love this one.. it has a good story and about 7hours of pure puzzel thinking. Some stages where way to easy and some took me a while to figure out. I also loved the twists of the game. To all of you that have played the game i only say "Im in space!" It was great fun.. Thinking of buying the game for ps3 aswell..
@Maxxramman ... *gag* there are three words I bet no one on this planet EVER expected to hear in a sentence: "amazing" and "will ferrell." WOW! I'm intrigued by how stupid parts of this game make me feel at times. To help with that I went and bought the first one. STILL have no idea how or why i'm blasting holes in walls just to be tested by this badly auto-tuned android! HOPEFULLY there will be sometime soon in the game where the greater meaning is revealed (I'd settle for the point ; ) Its also a little strange that the character you are supposedly playing as is a female. Hmmm maybe this is how a female feels if she chooses to play a FPS, i.e. CoD. Interesting.
@Kos1c & @XsickGamerX10 - It's more than just a puzzle game. It has a great story behind it and it ties itself with the Half Life Universe. I think it's a great game. It's better to have played the first one before playing the second.
@XsickGamerX10 I didn't know much about this game, and i got it yesterday. The game is a huge puzzle game, it's great fun, just sadly it's not as long. I've already completed it, took about 4-6 hours to do. But still one of those titles worth checking out. An easy 9/10 for me.
There has been a lot of hype about this game so ive looked at some trailers and I just cant see what all the fuss is about and it looks quite boring. So i have preordered LA NOIRE. But please if u have the game tell me what is so good about it
@djball They are hardly holding your hand. It has happened to me that I had no clue where to go due to an obscure portal-friendly surface.
@bigkahunabuger portal 2 does not have a singleplayer section...only a game mode you can play by yourself...that shows gamestpot doesn't have a clue about games.
The achievement for the propulsion gel is "Stranger than Friction", not stranger than fiction, like the amazing movie with will Ferrell.
I would really discourage the use of a walkthrough for Portal 2. Its charm comes (at least partly) from the satisfaction of solving the puzzles, and being told what to do diminishes your experience of the game. I guess using one section if you're really, REALLY, stuck would be okay, but please go back and be sure that you need the help before seeking help.
@illuminatirexx Hahahahahahahahahahahahaha, thank you, havent had a laugh like that in ages. wow. just wow. how can someone be so........hmmm whats the right word? stupid? its tame but it will do.
I have Portal 2 and in my opionion it is to easy, I completed it in 7 Hours. The puzzles are good enought but there is only 1 way to solve a puzzle and it is easy to find the solution. The Story is realy great it has some realy good twists in it.
